My current favorite pandemic meme came straight from of jaws of Facebook and suggests that perhaps God is sending us all to our rooms to give us time to consider what we’ve done.
Oh my. Well that could be a scary thought.
Oh? And why is that?
Well, duh. It could bring up all sorts of hidden stuff like guilt, and what I did wrong, and what I didn’t do that I should have, and what I did that I shouldn’t have. You know stuff like that.
That is true. And would that be such a bad thing?
Well it wouldn’t be very much of a comfort. I mean, after all, who wants to see the parts and pieces of themselves that they’ve been hiding from for a lifetime?
Ah. Perhaps you speak of the ego, the personality, the “small” self of the individual that feels disconnected from the larger Self. And speaking of disconnection, We sense that you have allowed yourself to drift off into the world of ego and are considering the impact of today’s writing upon the reader.
Oops. You would be correct.
May we remind you that your task is to simply write? There is no need for you to judge the words, nor how they may be perceived by those who read them.
Thank you. But it is still a little tempting to get a bit squirrely about whether or not I’ll be considered nuts.
We understand. And again, We remind you that what others think of you is irrelevant, for they will see you through the lens of their own perspective. We know that remnants of self-doubt occasionally rise up and play a role in your actions, choices, and decisions, and clearly, We see that this is one such occasion. We applaud the progress that you have made thus far in releasing this obstacle that occasionally stands in the way of your peace of mind, and for the courage it takes for your willingness to be transparent. Under these circumstances it is natural then, that a sense of hesitancy still exists.
Again, you would be correct. But I’ll get over it. Today for the first time since the pandemic lock-down, there is a bit of structure to my day and I need to get on the move. But I promised myself that I would blog every day, and today, this is it. How do I feel about it? I don’t know. But I’ll push the publish button anyway, and let the chips fall where they may. There are lessons to be learned in every situation, and I’m happy to learn mine, no matter now comfortable or uncomfortable they may be.
Thanks Pandemic for this opportunity to stop and consider what I have done. Oh—and to love and forgive myself for whatever it is that I think I may have done wrong.
Happy Easter everyone. May we rise up together into a glorious new beginning!
PS: If you are dazed and confused by what you just read (if in fact you even made it this far), it may be because you missed the last one or two blogs. Reading them will put this one in context.
